Topic - UKC Fit Club Week 386

Ally Smith on 10 Aug 2014
Link to last week's thread: http://www.ukclimbing.com/forums/t.php?n=594182
UKC Fit Club is not a substitute for the training diary but to use with (or without) it as a motivational tool for all.

For those wanting to find out more about training for climbing a number of physical training articles are linked here: http://www.ukclimbing.com/forums/t.php?t=274502

The following training article by Alex Barrows is the bible for training the four main "energy systems" specific to climbing:http://alexbarrowsclimbing.blogspot.com.es/2014/02/training-for-sport-climbing.html with information about scheduling a training regime to peak in time for a trip/competition can be found here: http://ukbouldering.com/media/pdf/periodisation.pdf

A new thread is posted each week on Sunday for anyone to jot down their previous week's activity, noting goals, successes and failures and to swap ideas.

Anyone interested in starting is very welcome but you should aim to post each week, every week, however little or much you have done. By making such a regular public record of your activities and by restating your goals every week this new habit will hopefully improve your training habits to help achieve your goals whatever the level of your chosen activity

hms – great volume and a 7a+ redpoint – sounds like a successful week to me
Nick Russell – stateside this week? I recall “Sing a mean toon” being a definite step up from “House Burning Down” – good to consolidate at these grades before pushing on to greater things
grubes – has weight loss goals to be achieved through some extra swimming? Beware the hunger cravings post swimming as the body temperature is low due to immersion.
Dandan82 – any chance your elbow issues are related to the long term aim of “strong shoulder”? Here’s an article by Joe le Sage (Sheffield wad/physio) that implies some links in climbers http://climbingphysio.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/elbows-introduction.html
Ally Smith – is a “geographically illiterate pillock!”
mattrm – Bad luck with the shoulder injury – have you tried some self-massage with a tennis ball against the wall?
Just Tintin – Awesome effort on the 1000+ backseat dropsies – I could barely manage 4 at a midsummer beach party (there night have been other factors inhibiting my performance though!)
Humperdink – Fast 5km this week? Thanks for the reality check on the chunky leg front.
Joughton – impressive quick ticks in Norway. How’s a week of scary slabs been after a week of steep sport?
Tubb93 – Indoor bouldering grades looking good for your Font 7a aspiration
Goonie – welcome back – impressive volume of training for being a new dad. Don’t over-cook it and end up injuried/kill the psyche.
Tyler – you missed the best conditions at Kilnsey this whole year! I hope the rest & elbow rehab is paying off?
Luke Owens – good lot of volume for stamina training. Keep varying the venue/rock angle to keep it fresh.
Exile - not bad for a week of lurgy
